A second lease of life for Tower Hamlets
The former home of the Royal London Hospital has been welcomed back into the community as the new Town Hall and headquarters for the London Borough of Tower Hamlets.
As one of the city’s oldest historic landmarks, it has been at the heart of the borough’s history since it was opened to patients in 1740. Protecting the building’s heritage and environment was therefore a priority for the project. The new town hall, which was part refurbishment and part new build, now provides over 26,700m2 of civic office space with open-plan, contemporary workplaces for council staff and partners.
The building was designed to be more than just an office for council staff. Dedicated to public use, the ground floor offers an open atmosphere bringing people together to easily access council services in one place. This reception area also hosts meeting spaces, a café, and the council chamber.
